. it is one of the key reasons the assad regime is still in power. something seems to be changing in syria because the last 24 hours rebels shot down two syrian aircraft. one hell copper and one jet plane. now in the past the rebels have been able to shoot down helicopters but this is the first time they shot down a jet plane and there are reports rebels have access to some type of new anti-aircraft weapon. possibly shoulder to air missile. it is not clear where they got it from or how many they have. some speculation may be that they confiscated it from the syrian military when they took over syrian bases in northern syria. it is also possible that outside countries like qatar or turkey actually supplied these weapons to the syrian rebels especially since it takes some training and some practice to fire a missile and take a plane out of the air. there is some speculation this is from outside sources as opposed to an internal confiscation of syrian military weapons. now either way this is a real game-changer in syria because the assad regime has had control of the skies. it is a powerful f
